Potato & Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips
It’s no surprise I’ve been on a blog hiatus for the past few weeks. I have been busy preparing for job interviews since I only get one shot to make a great impression. Hopefully my hard work pays off & I get an offer soon. I’m ready to work already!!

I have to thank Leanne over at Healthful Pursuit for peaking my interest in homemade potato chips. Just a few weeks ago I was munching on a bag of sweet potato chips that had to have been 20x’s worse than your average potato chip. All that added oil really packs in the calories. Thankfully, if you have some time and patience you can enjoy a guilty-free potato chip fix by making your own! It’s the alternative version to making chips using a dehydrator, however I think I want to try the dehydrating method sometime too.

Homemade Potato & Sweet Potato Chips
Recipe from:

Wash potatoes {I used Russet & Sweet Potatoes} & slice thinly with a vegetable slicer. Arrange in a single layer on a microwave-safe glass dish. Lightly spray (optional) with PAM butter spray & season with kosher salt or your favorite seasoning salt. Microwave potatoes in batches. Potatoes will generally take 7-7 ½ minutes on high. Sweet potatoes are done in about 4 minutes. Potatoes will become crispier as they cool. 
Potato Chips!!

YUM :)


  1. How perfect! I can never get sweet potato fries crisp because of all the moisture in them. I also have a dehydrater just waiting to be used. Thanks for the idea they look great. What good timming to check out your blog, glad I did.

  2. You know, I keep meaning to make my own chips but just never do. Perhaps you've given me good reason now. Yours look so crisp and yummy.

    I tagged you on my blog today to participate in a menu post if you are interested. Have a great weekend (what's left of it)!

  3. These look fantastic, and super easy! I made french fries last night but have been craving potato chips for sure.
